bang for the buck Turbo 350 converter.

Post by rfoll » Wed Apr 11, 2018 8:33 pm

Looking for something in the 2500-3000 rpm range behind a mild 383. looking for something other than a rebuilt 6 cylinder converter, hopefully under $400. Are there any standout companies in this price range?

Reach out to Michael at Freak Show converters in Abilene, TX. His phone is: (325) 701-7830 or you can message him through facebook or ebay. Last converter one of my buddies got from him was $350 and had free shipping.
I can't remember if he was really good at phone, and bad at email or vice versa LOL So do both?

On street applications that don't go over 500 HP, I've sold a few Trans Specialties converters. Was getting them from a warehouse in Indiana (VSI?). Seems they were in the $300 range and had no issues with em.

Jegs brand 10" converters the ones with the antiballon plates and Torrington bearings are TransSpecialties converters sold by Jegs. I used one of those back when I first started racing, a 3800 stall model and it worked well.

I notice no one suggested anything from B&M. I talked to a local repair shop about the cost of repairing a Hole Shot. He laughed and said "we call them one shot".

Same theme here, 383 gen1 sbc with early one piece 4L60E with lock up in truck 4x4, application with light towing and efficiency in mind.
